Take Out

we ordered take out from this restaurant. It is a bit on the pricier end as far as cheesesteaks/hoagies - BUT you get a lot of food! I ordered a Philadelphia Cheesesteak. I got a huge sandwich with lettuce, tomatoes and a dressing, no cheese though?? It is a nicely decorated restaurant. You walk in... read more

So good I could literally eat there every day for the rest of my life and Im not even Greek. Great price for the amount of food you receive. Service was quick also.

I ordered the gyro during lunch here one day. It was very tasty but really difficult to eat. It wasn't the best gyro I've had but I wouldn't mind coming here again and trying something else. They have nice outdoor seating.

YUM. In a word, that's my review. My son and I stopped for a late lunch. The chicken gyro was a huge hit - great tzatziki sauce, fresh lettuce and tomatoes, well-seasoned grilled chicken and the welcome addition of a few fries tucked into the sandwich. Nice outdoor cafe seating.

I took my wife out to get a late lunch here. This was the first time we ever went here and we were surprised with the large portions of food we received for the price. We both ordered two gyro platters and one large tea to share and it came out to around $26. The food was fresh and delicious.... More

This restaurant runs most of west Philadelphia and knows it! Living in west Philly and working at a major hospital in west Philadelphia your options for delivery are somewhat limited. Greek lady makes a generous size salad and their gyros are mediocre. However, my entire medical floor and myself have stopped ordering after having an issue every time we order.... More

I ordered a bacon egg and cheese on a bagel and it was the worst thing I have ever eaten. The bagel was horrible quality and there was literally zero bacon in my bagel or in my friend's.

This is a good place for a gyro and other Greek items. I had a lamb gyro sandwich with a side of fries. The sandwich was tasty but not truly authentic. The side of fries was large enough to share with 2-3 people. My co-worker's chicken gyro platter was also huge with portions that could feed 2 people.
